I need to start off by saying that this film is wonderful. It has a great aesthetic and I've always loved movies set in this era. There's something so whimsical and charming about this film, and it has a sense of whimsy and nostalgia that you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. As I said, well-acted, well-written, and a whole lot of fun. It's a great exploration of love and loss.
HOWEVER, the ending filled me with a fury that few other movies ever have. (Spoiler Alert Here) I was on team Dani, not Maureen, so when Maureen strikes up a relationship with Court even after she knows how much Dani cares for him, my heart was shattered. Maureen's betrayal hurt me more than even Court's death did. I didn't think that Dani should have forgiven Maureen so easily, or at all for that matter. I felt like I was manipulated into sympathizing with Maureen when I personally didn't think she deserved my sympathy after performing such a huge betrayal of her beloved sister.
Other than the very end, the rest of the movie is completely enjoyable, and a must-watch for fans of nostalgic, 50s, coming-of-age pieces.
